Fragments of Vanity
We all see, feel and experience the world differently. We understand colour and words never in the exact same way as the next person. Of course we do not feel this. Our brain evens things out and fills in all the blanks from the limited input from our senses. Only the experience of all people together, forms the total of human reality. As a person you only exist as a fragment of this reality. But we are vain beings. We believe that our brain can know the world and that there is an ultimate truth we share. To question this position I create fragments of vanity.

“The most common reaction of the human mind to achievement is not satisfaction, but craving for more.” ―
“Everything can be anything if you compare it to something.” ― Stephan Sjouke, Fragments of Vanity
